In an attempt to get this place to be a little more active... Let's try some genetic topics to encourage people to post, be enthusiast and new visitors to see this place is alive and worth participating in. Razz

My favourite attraction is The Revenge of the Mummy at Universal Studios Orlando. It think it's pretty much perfect, and combines so many elements which make a good ride. It also proves that, when used correctly, thematic elements can be used alongside a high-thrill ride with purpose and relevance.

i love the mummy, its not my favorite though since ive been on it a million times, i still love the design and technical stuff that went into it. i dont really have a specific favorite but i really love big thunder mountain railroad at WDW, its a good length for a roller coaster and its just a ton of fun

I guess I'm old fashioned, even if I'm not old.

Always loved the Matterhorn at Disneyland in Anaheim.

For me the Pirates of the Caribbean but I did really enjoy the new Finding Nemo ride even more than when it was 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea which was close second to PotC.

I am not a big coaster fan (though I know quite a bit about them... I just don't like the feeling of falling). So my favorite rides are the lush dark rides that were especially common in the old era of Disney: ex. Peter Pan, Haunted Mansion or Spaceship Earth. Although I also like the newer film rides, such as Soarin' and Philharmagic. It's hard to have a #1 favorite!

Holly, I was just thinking the other day about how much the older dark rides at Disney are just such great experiences. They really did bring things to such a high level back then.

They really did -- such beautiful theming! I feel like that level of theming is finally coming back again in recent rides (ex. Harry Potter). It's nice to see that happening...

I really want to get to the Harry Potter attractions, but probably won't be able to get down there for a while. My daughter is just too young for it still.

All the rides are attractive but Wood Coaster: El Toro at Six Flags Great Adventure and Steel Coaster: Bizarro at Six Flags New England are my favorite attraction.
